Ric Flair takes on the challenge of two of the South's toughest young men in Terry Taylor and Kerry Von Erich. Plus the Fantastics tangle with Doctor Death and Jake the Snake!

Currently watching the best wedding story WWE has ever done Macho/Liz. That moment was so great on TV.

For Halloween week I decided to watch some LA Park and that spawned an interest in watching some other lucha too. I love Park and have enjoyed watching a few random matches, including vs Santito from 12/23/01 and a crazy Nitro match w/ Psicosis vs Rey and Juvi from 12/97.

 

I also watched Park vs Ultimo Guerrero from 4/18/04 for the first time since 2004 - I recall touting it as my 2004 MOTY at the time. Not sure if I'd still do that but it's really good.

 

Including El Satanico vs Sangre Chicana from 9/24/83, so the day after Sangre Chicana vs MS-1, which elliot linked in the Sangre Chicana Top 100 nominee thread. I really enjoyed reading those threads at the time (and some after still) and wish I had participated rather than watch from the sidelines. 

 

Sangre Chicana vs MS-1 is absolutely a ***** match. I think it hits the 'peak' of the style and crowd and wrestlers in a way that the all-time greats recognizably do.

Wrestlemania 1 shook the wrestling world to it's core in March of 1985. Plus the WWF signed 3 other contracts worth potentially millions of dollars tp their bottom line. Also covered is the stories of Ted Turner and Vince McMahon butting heads over money and other issues as their business relationship crumbles, an Amazon invades the women's division, a celebrity is injured by Hulk Hogan, an infamous murder suspect nearly becomes part of the Mania event, Mr. T proves to be a lousy guest, the headliners Maina paydays cause some ill feelings, Bruno Sammartino thrashes the some WWF stars while doing public relations for the company, plus more news and notes!

Watching the Lawler vs Rich/Idol comp for the third time, or so.  Never fails to entertain me.  This is the one that is on the HighSpots Network, though I have seen another one, too.

I saw an 05 Perros (Perro, Jr., Tarzan Boy, Hector Garza) vs Mistico, Casas, Heavy Metal trios while holding a screaming baby. It had pretty much everything you'd want from it: a mean rudo beatdown with attitude, Casas and Garza facing off and hamming it up, Toscano and Heavy metal going super fast, young Mistico diving about recklessly, a spirited comeback, and an action packed finishing stretch. I really love CMLL trios like that.

I proudly present the 6,329th review of Wrestlemania 1 on the internet! It is a necessary evil as I climb through wrestling history month-by-month. Inside I cover the somewhat surprising story the main event tells -something I don't remember grasping in previous viewings over the years. Plus, Wendi Richter continues to deliver poor matches amid major hype, Buddy Rose is good at this whole pro wrestling thing, King Kong Bundy is a lying liar, Special Delivery Jones may have Wolverine-like recuperative powers, JYD manages to get winded from laying on the mat, the WWF rulebook changes match from match, Captain Lou is sedated, Barry Windham's collarbone gives him CTE, an MSG janitor gets his Wrestlemania moment, and more!

Im stuck at a cross roads here. I started to watch NWA around the 1986 season where I was watching every weekly show then I got to October 1990 just after Havoc, but due to family problems had to take a break from it and now a year later with less free time now sure how to continue it.

 

At the moment I get a free 90 mins per day to watch stuff so been catching up to WWF stuff from Mania 7 to Mania 9 and almost into Summerslam 93 but Id like to go back into WCW so would it be best to continue 1990 or start somewhere else?

 

Having less time means I cant see everything that I would like to as I was going through Main Event, Pro, Worldwide, Sat Nite, Power Hour so looking for the best solution.
